Day 2- The rain and the Volta Lake.

In the morning we got a tro-tro (wagons shared by passengers that once they were paid with the old coin “tro”, and a trip cost 2 tros: from that the name “tro-tro”), but a harsh rain caught us few minutes before the arrive to the tro-tro station in Akosombu where we waited it to stop for a couple of hours. Finally we took a cab to the Dodi Princess pontoon waiting other two hours on the river shore because of the rain.

Nicolas came to pick us up by boat for quickly visiting the commercial tilapia farm nursery site. The floating cages were really impressive, as well as the other parts of the whole fish-farm. In the afternoon we met the supervisors of fish-farm for a breathing with Nicolas about the growth trial on tilapia fingerlings. In the cloudy evening we came back to Kpong for getting prepared for the following day.
